Masked gunmen stormed two cell phone transmitting stations in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, opening fire and disrupting cellular phone coverage in the latest outbreak of violence in the volatile area. The gunmen first broke into the Gaza City offices of the Palestinian cell phone company, Jawal, and opened fire. They did not identify themselves and did not make any demands. No one was injured and no serious damage was caused. Shortly after, gunmen attacked Jawal facilities in the Jebaliya refugee camp, opening fire inside the small building housing transmission equipment, then torching a transmitter and antenna. Hamas security forces members arrested one of the gunmen, but the others escaped. The gunmen did not state their motives.
